SALT LAKE CITY — A West Valley City woman has found guilty in the fatal stabbing of her boyfriend during a Labor Day barbecue.

A Salt Lake City jury deliberated for six hours Thursday before convicting 42-year-old Thu Huong Thi Nguygen (WIN') of murder and obstruction of justice.

Prosecutors say she stabbed the 44-year-old victim, Thai Van Le as he held their small child in September 2013.

Prosecutors say the couple had been fighting for hours when she got the knife and Le challenged her to stab him.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1FkHy8n) that Nguyen testified she loved Le and accidently stabbed him after her arm was pushed.

She faces up to life in prison at a sentencing scheduled for May 4.
